In Italy, Psy was booed off the stage.
Psy performed for the 2013 Coppa Italia Final between A.S. Roma and Lazio on May 26th at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome. He was invited to perform, “Gangnam Style,” however the entire crowd started to boo when he started to perform, and when he was finished he was still met with a chorus of boos instead of the usual cheers.
Afterwards in an interview he said,”Italy is famous for being a passionate country. I understand yesterday’s response. I know what it means. Similar things happen in Korea when two teams go against each other.”
The audience did not only boo Psy, but they sang their own cheer song for their team, which threw off the entire performance. Psy himself understood that the fans desired to see the match itself, since it was the final, not watch a Korea artist who seemed to have no relation to the match.
